One of the meatier novellas from Dunhams Manor Press imprint of Dynatox Ministries is Mike Griffin s Far From Streets The back cover compares the books to Von Trier s Antichrist and Blackwood s The Willows both of which are apt The novella focuses on a married couple who inherit a large piece of land rather deep in the wilderness The wife would rather sell it and move into an even nicer suburban home but the husband sees the inheritance as an escape a chance to build a cabin and cut himself off from the 9 5 world They attempt a compromise the husband builds a cabin and reality itself seems to unravel Griffin excels at writing personal relationships The joys the strains the beauty and the ugliness are all shown in great detail The book is about obsession and relationships as much as it s about the difference between suburbia and the wilderness and manages to be far than just a surreal creep out fest because of this Griffin becomes and impressive and this is my favorite work of his to date

review Far From Streets

Far From Streets Summary Ò 9 Vers Mountain wildernessReverence for nature balances against the terror of isolation Mutual dependency leads to resentment Our fondest dreams drag us toward places that threaten our very survival When the last remaining tether is cut time spins away We no longer recognize ourselves in the mir. Another home run from Michael Griffin His story Diamond Dust was one of my favorites in THE GRIMSCRIBE S PUPPETS the Thomas Ligotti tribute anthology that won a Shirley Jackson Award last year In FAR FROM STREETS Griffin shows the same insight into troubled personal relationships and high strangeness but switches the industrial setting of Diamond Dust for the primal woods of his native Pacific NorthwestAs FAR FROM STREETS progresses the unexplained looms larger and larger The narrative becomes hazier and a sense of not rightness becomes pervasive Reading this in bed late last night I started to get that subtly anxious confused waking nightmare feeling that usually comes to me with reading the aforementioned Ligotti That doesn t happen for me very oftenLike the best weird fiction FAR FROM STREETS grounds the Otherness in a solid bedrock of believability with characters who seem like actual people with relatable problems and vivid descriptions of the wilderness and suburbs where much of the story takes place Griffin is as adept at writing passages of daily domestic life as he is at bringing down the hammer of cosmic horror and the dynamic and dialog between the two main characters reminded me of Nathan Ballingrud at times Other parts of the story caused thoughts of Laird Barron and Richard Gavin to burble up though my brain This is all high praise as those are three authors I both enjoy and highly respectAll that said I feel like I need to read the book again to fully pick up on everything that happens To his credit Griffin does not spell everything out and I finished the book with a few uestions that a re read might answer Or maybe not That is one of the attractions of this kind of story to me the ambiguity and uncertainty Just like life itselfIf you have read and enjoyed any of the other authors I mentioned above there is an very good chance will like this book FAR FROM STREETS is already sold out but I m sure it will be included in Griffin s first collection a book I hope to see sooner than later

    Michael Griffin (Kindle ePUB) Far From Streets – Kindle, DOC & PDF Download Griffin's strengths are having the surreal and strange grounded in real human emotions and experiences and explaining heady philosophical ideas in language that manages to be both elegant and understandable I personally do not have a lot of patience for stuff that goes over my head and I admit most things go over
